We are currently seeking an enthusiastic and team spirited Interim Credit Controller to join our client - who are a small but hands-on IT company based in Reading Town Centre.

The successful Interim Credit Controller will be responsible for:

  • Chasing of outstanding debt by telephone, email and letter
  • Working closely with the Finance Manager, within a finance team of 3
  • Offering an empathetic and customer-centric approach to their work
  • Issuing of copy invoices and statements
  • Investigating and resolving all customer queries and requests, escalating where needed
  • Working closely with the wider finance team and the account mangers to resolve customer queries
  • Using SAGE and Excel

Key skills & competency requirements

  • Excellent interpersonal skills
  • Familiarity with computer systems and good excel knowledge
  • Good numeracy skills
  • Confidence and the ability to place pressure tactfully on companies who owe money
  • Hard working with a drive to meet targets
  • Adaptability and good problem solving skills
  • Great organisation skills

This role would suit a candidate who is able to offer some recent Credit Control experience who is seeking a temporary opportunity initially on a temporary basis until the end of April, covering maternity leave. Full training on their IT systems and ongoing support will come in abundance but you must previously have worked in a Credit Control role.
